The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RvO) has awarded a
of EUR 4 million to the
project. Of this, almost EUR 400,000 will go to two theme groups led by
Prof. Erik Heeres
of the Engineering and Technology Institute Groningen (ENTEG). The total InReP project is led by the Dutch Polymer Institute and the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology.
InReP stands for Integrated approach towards Recycling of Plastics. Within this project, waste collectors, sorters & recyclers, chemical industry, end users and knowledge institutions join forces. Their goal is to develop technologies in sorting, mechanical recycling and chemical recycling that make high quality recycled plastics available for the two dominating types of polymer as feedstock: polyolefins (PE/PP) and PET.
Heeres will lead and coordinate two theme groups:
‘Thermochemical Recycling: mixed polyolefins via pyrolysis to naphtha’ & ‘Thermochemical conversion of mixed polyolefin-based plastics towards Aramid and PET (via low molecular weight aromatics (BTX)’.
